A Quick Update For You

Thursday, July 30, 2020

I know it's been a while since I wrote to you all but there has been a lot happening in my life.

Mainly regarding my health. My hands have been progressively getting worse with Tuesday being the worst yet as far as the condition. My hands swelled up to an unrecognizable state and had a lot of pain accompanying them. Couldn't do anything with them. Luckily my friend was staying with me and helped out in any way she could. She was a godsend!

Yesterday I had my doctor's appointment, finally, and he was a very nice and very kind person. I explained all I knew and he actually took the time to take it in. He then began having me move my hands this way and that so he could determine a better evaluation of the situation. He seemed puzzled in what I could and couldn't do. So he request x-rays for the hands and took some blood just to rule out what it might not be. I did all this yesterday but never made it to the pharmacy to get my meds. I was too exhausted after the doctor's visit and the emergency clinic x-rays. In a lot of pain but glad to finally be getting some needed answers. Doc should have answers for me today, even though I haven't heard from him yet. I called in and left word just to remind them that I'm out here waiting for answers.

In the meantime, the topical CBD that I ordered came in the other day and I began to apply it to my hands. Believe it or not, it does seem to help the pain to some extent. It seems to pinpoint certain areas of my hands (different on each hand) by giving me some tingling and some pinching and even some burning sensations in various different areas. Well, that's a good sign I guess. It looks like it may be healing itself on its own. But I sure would love to know what is exactly going on. Well, guess I can wait a couple more hours if I need to.

I can't handle typing for too long so I'm going to end it here. BUT .... please know I'm still here for my teams and I'll be back posting when my hands allow it. Cubbies are on a roll since they started playing ball again and the Blackhawks won last night so I'm a happy camper. To all my team mates on my teams, woo hoo to all of you that are still rooting us all on to victory.

God bless you all!
